Kalahari Hero
Namibia

Kalahari

Explore Kalahari

Quite dissimilar to the neighboring Namib, the Kalahari covers a vast array of landscapes and isn't simply defined by swirling red dunes. The Kalahari, while arid, has the ability to support a wider variety of life thanks to higher levels of rainfall and greener vegetation, with short grasses and Camelthorn trees dotting parts of the hinterland.

Highlights

  • Discover semi-desert landscape and dramatic scenery
  • Home to rare species, including the elusive pangolin and porcupine
  • Immersive cultural experiences with the San Bushmen
  • Home to the famous black-maned Kalahari lions
